If you’ve recently dragged your child’s bike out of winter storage, only to find he’s outgrown (or worn out) last year’s model, check out the Handy Guide to choosing a bicycle for your child that we published last spring.
It covers everything from whether to get a bike with gears and hand brakes to the all-important helmet fit, and suggests 24-inch models at low, medium and high price points. That size would fit most children ages 7 to 11. It also includes tips on caring for your bike and finding the right size for your child.
Now pardon me while I strap on my helmet and dust off my own bike for a long-overdue spring ride.
